New multimedia exhibit opening in Lord Hall Gallery

Lord Hall Gallery at the University of Maine will feature a new multimedia exhibition by artist and researcher Nina Elder titled “HOLD” from Aug. 21–Oct. 13. 

In this exhibition, Elder explores the various implications of holding. Hold means many things: to support, to embrace, to detain, to stop and to remain secure. A hold can be a measure of capacity, a fortress, a wrestling move or a method of belief. Comprising three bodies of work — “Fray,” “Uplift” and “Overburden” — the exhibition brings attention to what people hold as well as what holds them.

Elder also will present a free artist talk at 7 p.m., Sept. 5 in room 104 of the Innovative Media Research and Commercialization (IMRC) Center. 

The gallery is open from 9 a.m.–4 p.m. Monday–Friday. For more information, contact Diana Baumbach,
